- IT services provider Softcat said it expected its full-year adjusted operating profit to be 'materially ahead' of its prior expectations.

Since releasing a positive trading statement on 23 May, the company said it had performed 'exceptionally well'.

'Market conditions have been very favourable and growth against prior year has accelerated,' Softcat said.

'As a result, the board now expects that full year 2018 adjusted operating profit will be materially ahead of its prior expectations.'

The company's preliminary results are scheduled for release on 17 October.
